Abstract: The supercontinum generation has been achieved mainly by two di erent approaches, namely, with femtosecond intense pulses or using a continuous wave laser or larger pulses centered on the anomalous dispersion region. In order to improve temporal coherence, it has been suggested the introduction of a pulse seed or the propagation of both a large pulse pump and a small weaker continuous wave to control the soliton ssion. Here we propose supercontinuum generation using a hybrid input, we pump with a continuous laser and copropagate a picosecond signal. We compare the bandwidth of the supercontinuum using only the continuous pump or the hybrid setup. Simulations of the generalized Schrodinger equation, using an adequate input-noise model to reproduce the spectrum of the continuous signal, are performed in order to investigate the supercontinuum generation in the optical communication window under di erent dispersion regimes.
